Buttons, Zippers and Basic Construction

In this class, we will up your rank to 2nd-Level Sewing Sorcerer with a handful of crucial, technical sewing skills, giving you the confidence and vocabulary needed to take on simple garment construction. Using a combination of demonstrations and sample sewing, you will learn the ins and outs of fabric and fabric grain, proper cutting techniques, how to create and sew buttonholes using the sewing machine buttonhole feature, how to install basic zippers, and other handy skills for basic garment construction. You will complete a pouch with a zipper opening that is the perfect size for everyday items or  or drawing supplies.  However, this class is more technical in order to increase your comfort with the sewing machine, and add a new set of technical skills to your growing sewing arsenal.

Prerequisite: Sewing 101, Denim Repair or equivalent. (and by equivalent, we mean you already know how to use a sewing machine, wind thread around the bobbin, and complete simple sewing projects with a machine.
